Blarney Stone - Vancouver
We ordered a round of drinks and they arrived but our server disappeared and half of us finished our drinks before she reappear and we were all waiting to order food. We didn’t order our food until almost an hour after having been seated. And one of the girls asked for a dash of lime in her Vodka Soda, it arrived with wayyyyy to much lime and then she was charged for the lime juice. Which life is life but to still have the tip added onto our bills for 18% when we clearly received no service at all is absolutely ridiculous.
Had a great birthday bash there for 20 people.. Music was fab.. Price for drinks and food were average. Great vibe overall..
Good food, music, and atmosphere. The live band, Shenanigans, was awesome. It was packed with hardly any room to move, but everyone was having a good time. Only downside is the location--the neighborhood is not safe.
Good Place for friday evenings
Made reservations for dinner for a bachelorette party had a great time
We had a brilliant night and will come back again.
Good food, great music & service. Would definitely go back again.
Good is really good. Nice service and the live music in Fridays is great
I'm in a wheelchair and they found a big enough place for myself and my party. I didn't eat but the rest did and were happy with their food. They had alcoholic drinks. I didn't but was happily served my diet coke The waitress was attentive and came around a lot. We didn't win at that night's event but it was a lot of fun. We were wondering if a Friends Trivia might be fun.
Oh, one glaring thing. The only accessible washroom was the men's, friend had to stand guard and it smelled terrible.
Large group of us for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meals, service was fantastic, reasonable prices and portions.
Would eat here again.
Stayed for the band and dancing...had a GREAT time!!
A great time was had by all.
Blarney it’s a awesome place with good music, fantastic food but the service is terrible... the waitress there treat you wathever they want and always with bad mood...
I love the Blarney! Live band, live music, energetic! Friendly Waitresses and Staff! Can't complain! Can get a bit over crowded by the tables near the side bar later towards the night
I would recommend coming here again for sure with friends
Great food and service! However our group of 10 was split into seperate booths.
Disappointed in the entire lunch. It was apparent that it was a bar and asked if they could seat us with a young toddler. We had tried to call the bar several times to ask this question but no one answered the phone. Surprisingly they seated us but it was evident when we sat down that it was not a place that could accommodate toddlers. . . no booster seat or high chair. Being not busy at all it still took us a while to get our food. I should of trusted my gust instinct and moved on to a more family friendly establishment.
Unable to reach anyone leading up to my event. Left messages and called dozens of times. People at door were not very helpful and kind of rude. When I explained that I had called all week, I was told that they don't "do phones really anymore". Waiting staff were fantastic! Band was awesome as always. Very long waits for the bar. Like 15 to 30 min for a drink. Not the bartenders fault, just not enough staff. The drinks are also super watered down. We used to come to Blarney a few times a year, and the difference in drinks was really noticeable. Like 4 to 5 long islands and no buzz even :(
Absolutely fabulous will come again I was impressed from start to finish thank you
Was on the second floor, super good service and food, but was incomfortably hot.
The waitress was very rude to me and my friends. Always impatient. The tip has already been included in the bill, which is illegal, but we paid the tip anyway, because we think the others employees have nothing to do about it. But at the end of it all she had no change to give us and we had to stay in loss! Worst service I have ever experienced.
We came for the trivia night. Two of use ordered the vegan patty burger with yam fries. The amount of yam fries served was very small, especially considering there is an additional fee to swap from regular fries. Further, the burger patty was very salty and the texture was pretty icky. We appreciated that an attempt was made for something vegan, and that it is made in house, but it could be greatly improved. We are vegetarian and didn’t ask if the rest of he burger (bun, condiments) were vegan, are they? The servers were attentive and friendly, so that was a positive. Plus, the trivia night was a lot of fun. Thanks!
Blarney Stone accommodated our group of 40 with no problems on a Friday night. Our section was ready for us upon arrival and the service was prompt. I felt the food as good value and enjoyable as far as pub food goes. This is an excellent choice for a large group with a fun atmosphere.
Our visit was a first and we had a great time - super atmosphere- attentive staff-yummy food. We will be back!
I had read reviews about the “reservation” system so was a little concerned about the reservation for 8 being honoured. Needn’t have worried. Greeted by the Manager and after a 5 minute wait for them to clean the table after the Whitecaps fans left we were seated at a great table. Our server ( from Australia) was terrific. Never had to look for her she was always on top of it. Sorry I didn’t get her name to acknowledge her. Food was okay. Steak and Guinness pie was not as good as other visits -a bit dry but still tasty. Left just as the music was starting as it was really getting crowded and noisy and our group wanted to talk.
my roasted vegetable salad was sooo good and everyone else seemed happy with their meals as well.
Don't go too late if you want to have a conversation. it turns into a nightclub. I didn't realize it until too late. And by that time it's impossible to find your server.
Stopped by to have a couple of drinks with friends & had a great time. No music yet but service was great.
First time at Blarney Stone. My friends and I had a great time last Saturday night. Thanks to the team who make this an amazing place! From the security at the entrance to the server, everyone was great!
Did not know there would be a cover charge, would be a good thing to add to the reservation message so you know ahead of time. Fun place but very loud! So not a good place if you want to visit with the people you go with, you wont be able to hear them.
Me and my friends come here to dance. The dance floor is a bit small, but the live bands arr always great! They play lots of folk music, (such as the Lumineers, the Proclaimers) and engage the audience. The food is always hot and delicious although I've only ordered food here twice. Nice beer selection, and excellent service. Never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a waitress to check on us. It's fun to stay here all evening, although as the night goes into 11:00 PM, and onward, the dance floor becomes a bit too crowded. Other than that, the Blarneystone makes for a lively and entertaining evening out.
The food is excellent and they have a few unique drinks, live band was great. We will definitely be back to try some more of the menu
Disappointed, I got there at 8:10pm and didn't have my reservation
Thank you for amazing music live performance. You are awesome!!!
Very bad experience ......
Great staff, good food and an excellent atmosphere
I go to Blarney for almost every special event. It truly has great music and is very reasonably priced. However I was extremely upset that I had made a reservation for a table of 6 people and when I arrived I was told that I did not have a reservation. When I showed my confirmation email I was told that it was only a guest list. I had made the table reservation to celebrate my sisters birthday so I was truly upset. I also find it amusing that I am writting this review after receiving an email asking to how my experience with my table reservation went (further confirmation that it was not my mistake but Blarney's). All I can say now is that I'm not nearly as likely to go back as I had been before.
This seems to be a neighborhood bar. Upon arrival bartender told us to sit anywhere & seemed surprised when I said we had a reservation.
Food was decent although shepherds pie was excellent
Great spot and great service.
Celebrated my birthday here with a group of 20. Service was good and so was the food. I have been to Blarney stone in the past and the overall experience has always been a pleasure. Make sure you get on a guest list on weekends as this place gets absolutely packed. I will return in the future to enjoy this great pub.
Nice charming Irish Pub with all the Irish themed beers including local and international offerings. Food was quite tasty and had great service from the staff!
Very well cared for by evening manager, Jesse and server. Food was tasty, piping hot and fresh. For a quick dinner it was perfect. Very casual and not too loud as we were there before 7pm on a Saturday.
